No pionters needed, just embedded drm_connector_state into
drm_writeback_connector_state as the "base" member. Then we can
provide ready-made atomic_set/get_property functions for the aditional
writeback functionality.

But tbh I'd only start doing that once we have a few more. It's purely
an implementation change, with no effect on userspace. And if you go
with my drm_writeback_connector_init idea, it won't even be an issue
for drivers.
